The aim of the program is to foster the conservation of Nubian giraffe into a long-term conservation program in Soysambu Conservancy providing science evidence-based practical management solutions and ideas. Our mission is to provide data
on key animal species (Giraffe, lions, and other wildlife species) to the Management as well as help maintain the pristine beauty of Soysambu Conservancy. The data we collect is used to evaluate population numbers and help conservationists
and managers make informed decisions on wildlife and its critical habitats.
Students and volunteers are the centers of our work, helping us in the field, as well as supporting the project financially, making our vital work possible. We provide a free service to the conservancy, which contributes valuable information
to the management.
